Dear Bec,

We just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing job you did photograph our wedding.

You and your team were incredible, the minute we met with you we felt comfortable and knew that we wanted you to capture our wedding day. From our beautiful engagement shoot to our amazing wedding ceremony and reception, the photos tell the story and bring back all the memories of the amazing time we had.

You made an effort to get to know us which made us be able to relax and have fun with the photos. Yourself and the team were energetic, passionate and confident in what you were doing and you kept us moving in a professional and fun way!

You kept us updated in the lead up to the wedding and you were so patient with us before, during and after!

The presentation of our photos is truly amazing and we love the album and our parents adored the parent albums they received. We honestly cannot thank you enough and couldn’t have wished for a better photographer.

Sarah and As



My name is Rebecca, but everyone calls me Bec, and I’ve been a photographer for 18 years now. A long time ago I studied professional photography at R.M.I.T Uni and then also went back for more training at Deakin Uni.

James and I have two children, Maya who is 7 and Remi, my baby, who is growing up too quickly!

Can we just pause time to keep them just so perfectly little forever? I’m pleased to say that I have lots of photos to help me to remember these precious everyday moments.

My home studio is based in Alfredton in Ballarat. It has beautiful natural light, which is how I like to capture my photographs for newborns and their families.

I’ve been trained extensively to ensure your baby is safely handled and posed. This is really important, as little limbs can only be moved in certain ways. Thank you for valuing professional photography by taking a look on my website.

My studio is clean and all items are washed before your session in natural baby safe detergents. The room is very warm to make sure your newborn’s temperature is maintained and that they don’t become unwell as we change their outfits or wraps.

I have a wide range of baby props, headbands, hats and backdrops for your baby photography session. We will chat about your preferred colours before you come in to make sure I fit in with your personal tastes.

Milestone and family photography sessions are also on offer.  I love to capture photographs of toddlers and children having fun. Photographs of children playing with their siblings and parents are so fun! I like taking photos of kids just being kids!  If your child is of a walking age we are best to photograph them on location in Ballarat so they can explore and roam, rather than having to be in a confined space.  That way I can capture more relaxed, natural photos for you.

I hope to hear from you soon,

Zoe has given us the gift of being able to relive our days with a tiny newborn baby every time we look at the photos, which is such a beautiful thing to be able to do as children really do grow so quickly! Zoe is a master behind the camera who was able to capture the fleeting moments of our family interactions making beautiful, natural memories to last a lifetime ,but, the most amazing part was her ability to manage 3 young children and a newborn for 3 hours and make the session enjoyable and stress free which doesn't happen often with a young family of 6.

My name is Rebecca and I have been a wedding, family and newborn photographer for 20 years. Everyone I know, family, friends and my clients, all call me Bec; so you can too.

Wedding photography. . .

Wedding photography is something that I know you will value forever.

You will love remembering that ' butterfly in your tummy' moments. 

You will enjoy looking back on the photographs of your wedding ceremony, surrounded by family and friends.

And your family will hang the family photographs, with everyone all dolled up, in pride of place in their homes.

So you can see why hiring a professional, a local wedding photographer is a great option.

Another important thing about me is that I love helping people plan the perfect wedding. So if you run into a dilemma, need a referral to another fabulous wedding vendor or just can't seem to get your head around how things might run, you can rely on me for ideas. I pretty much live and breathe weddings!

Some neat things about my wedding photography services and packages:

  • all wedding photography packages include two photographers, providing clients with a wide range of camera angles and more candid imagery of the wedding day
  • wedding packages include high-resolution digital files .jpeg on a USB drive, ready to print
  • the albums I offer are stunning modern works of art
  • two photographers on your wedding day = more candid images

If you would like to find out more about my wedding photography services in Ballarat and many other areas of Australia, please click here to visit the contact page.

Family Photography. . .

My approach to family photography is about taking photographs involving authentic connections. 

The glances that parents show when their child mucks around.

The giggles in between silly faces.

The floating hair while running.

The simple expressions. The in-between moments, the normal, everyday expressions, among the laughter and smiles.

The best way that I find to capture these family connections is either in the family home or on location. That way the children can play, explore and just be themselves (while being photographed.)

Contact me if you would like the true nature of your family captured in a visual photography story.

Newborn Photography. . .

I have been specialising in newborn photography for many years now. It is common that many new parents book their newborn photography session in advance, but you are also welcome to book after having your baby.  The best window of time sneaks up quickly, as ideally babies are best photographed between 6-12 days new. Photography sessions take place in my Alfredton, Ballarat based home studio.

I like to find out about the colours you like for your baby and any props that you have in mind. 

Photographing you with your new baby is important too, as it might be the first professional family photograph you will have taken together. The photograph will become very important to your new family member later on.

With training in baby safety, a range of posing skills and some unique props; a wide range of photographs will be taken of your new baby.

Sharna always going above and beyond for all her clients and even with this covid 19 and having to wear a mask and everything changing witch would be very challenging but shes smashing it out beautifully 🙂 I highly recommend to anyone... photos are always amazing making memories you will never get back


Hey, that's me over there on the right!

My name is Sharna, I'm a passionate photographer!

I may not be a size 6, and may have a couple of tattoos but please don’t let that deter you! I promise I am one of the nicest people you will meet.

I have spent the past few years investing in Face to Face mentoring and Online Workshops to better my skills and knowledge. I have worked hundreds of beautiful families who have trusted me with their bundles of joy to photograph their weddings! 

I am a loving wife and mother and proud parent to my own 3 beautiful children, who keep me very busy! Working in the industry and being a mum gives me the additional knowledge of children, what works and what doesn’t…Or even what to bribe them with.

My passion for photography came from wanting to make memories with my own children that would last a lifetime in an image, In 6 months my business blew up! I really didn’t expect the support and love that I received, that I outgrew my small studio space and leased a commercial building right in the Centre of town!

Allowing me to create a beautiful space that I could only have ever dreamed out I have an extensive range of photography skills and can photo a variety of different styles, I have learnt from some of Australia’s BEST award-winning photographers! I have a deep passion for learning more and developing my skills as a photographer further. I am available for studio and location sessions.

OMGimagery specialises in Newborn and Toddler photography and also enjoy Family photography.

About the photographer, I'm a mother of 4 gorgeous babies, as well as a wife and a Registered Nurse. This means I am trained, vaccinated accordingly and certified to handle your babies with the utmost care and consideration. My assistants Simone & Jade are also trained and educated to fulfil their job roles to the max!

​My 'working' days are strictly Monday, Thursday and Friday. 

Sadly due to my other two jobs - a Registered Nurse and a Mummy of 4 - my weekends are already full.

However, if you MUST have a weekend session, we offer 4 seasonal weekend mini sessions per year, correlating with the current season! Stay tuned as these sells out FAST!

We have just released our SPRING MINI SESSIONS due to take place late September.

We now plan on holding these sessions annually- so when these sessions come up- grab one! You won't want to miss it!

My passion for photography, and in particular capturing Newborns, Infants, Children and Families, like many photographers, stemmed from the moment I became a mother myself. Cliche I know. 

But, unfortunately, my passion is unique, in that our firstborn baby boy was stillborn some 10 years ago. This heartbreaking circumstance ultimately, after time, allowed my artistic passion

to grow into photography realising that sometimes we only get one opportunity to capture those once in a lifetime moments. This inspiration allows me to always be patient, creative and understand the investment families make to have these beautiful memories captured for them.

I hold over 8 years of experience and knowledge of the industry and I have invested uncountable dollars and hours of study and research into DSLR photography, as well as attended several newborn and childhood photography workshops around Australia including that of Jinky Art, Tory D and Dewdrops by Amy McDaniels. These world-renowned photographers are a huge inspiration to my style and are a glimmer of where I hope to be myself one day.

I know Hayley as a photographer but also as a businesswoman and as a mum...I have seen how much passion she puts into her work, form hand made products with beautifully printed images to place on our homes. I can totally relate to her work and to her beautiful and helpful personality. A truly amazing person to work with.



Hi, I am Sarah-Jane, SJ for short and never Sarah! I am a Wife, Mumma, Groodle lover, Photographer,  Designer and Art Teacher. I was born on a farm just out of Ganmain, NSW (you may need to google that one) and now reside in Bendigo, Victoria.

When I’m not photographing or designing you can find me enjoying the outdoors with my family, visiting cafes, travelling, cooking, trying to garden and supervising our house renovations.

Photography was a passion from a young age shooting on a Kodak analogue camera and eagerly waiting for it to be developed. Halfway through Year Eleven, I changed High Schools as my Photography class clashed with Modern History and I wanted to do both. I went on to study a Bachelor of Arts in Photography and Design at University in Wagga. It was in my second year that I was approached by one of my lectures to Photograph a Wedding. I was a nervous wreck, however, here I am 11 years later still doing it!

I started doing small Design jobs for friends. When my sister approached me to design her Wedding Stationery, I fell in love with all things Weddings, adding this component to my business. It started with invitations and now includes on the day signage, stubby holders and so much more.

From here I decided to go back and study. I wanted to specialise in Visual Arts and teach my passion for The Arts to the younger generation. You can find me teaching Art part-time at a local school in Bendigo whilst running my business on my days off  (with a toddler underfoot). The perfect balance of doing what I love!

I just received Amber's photos from my son's second birthday.  She captured the spirit of the celebration perfectly and has given us beautiful memories that we can share with others.  I was particularly impressed with how quickly Amber processed the images.  Thank you!


I'm a portrait photographer based in The Dandenong Ranges, Victoria. Photographing people at any stage of their lives, my work is often described as whimsical and story-telling. Drawing inspiration from children’s books and childhood memories, aiming to capture and create artwork for your home. Looking for connections between people, I do give instruction initially, but after a moment, something real happens. That’s the shot.

My journey as a photographer began when I was fourteen. I was handed a mechanical film camera, a Pentax K1000 and told to go outside and look for the light. I thought, ‘Huh? But it’s everywhere, it’s daytime!’ Little did I understand, I had never really seen light or seen colour before. This was a whole new world. Since that day, in 1995, I don’t think there has been a week pass without a camera in my hands.

Photography is my passion. It’s my language. It’s my life.

A little about myself / how did I get to this point

Being a photographer is no easy business. It takes a true artist to capture the emotion of the moment and take pictures that will make people smile for years to come. Oh, and of course it also requires an amazing camera and a lot of other expensive gear.

My interest in photography began while serving in the Australian army back in the late '80s. The exercises we participated in often had the most incredible backdrops and due to the nature of our profession, also amazing drama. I was never far from my camera and over those early years took some amazing shots, however with a cost of approx $14 per roll of 36 negatives, my passion was soon lost.

Mid 1990's and along comes to a computer program called Photoshop. Being a small business owner of a roof restoration company, I thought it a good idea to learn this handy graphic designers tool for logo and other graphic applications. It was about then that I purchased my first digital camera being a small Ricoh RDC-2 in 1996, thus realizing my new found photoshop skills as extremely helpful during the processing stage of developing digital photos and re-sparking my love for photography.

1998 and a work opportunity inspires me to sell up and move to the Gold Coast. Being around 30 years old and up for new challenges, I didn't hesitate, however, things don't always go to plan. I gave my underpaid and overworked job plenty of time to turn itself around but to no avail. 

September 11, 2001, some lunatics fly some plans into New York's World Trade Center and The Pentagon. I remember watching it all unfold at about 11 pm. Reading the News Paper the next day I stumbled across a classified advert from a company called Central Casting requesting interested ex-military guys for a 2-week shoot on location at Bribie Island. Coincidentally it was an American war movie called The Great Raid. I believe in fate so I couldn't pass up this opportunity. Best thing I ever did. Lucky for me I was chosen as a featured extra and military adviser to a select group of very well known actors. Working on that movie for a very intensive 11 months, seeing a Hollywood film crew in action setting up shots throughout the days and nights during those months and picking the brains of Pier the set photographer (who took me under his wing), was easily the best training and introduction into serious photography a person could ever ask for. Central Casting looked after me for the following 12 months with rolls in the movies Peter Pan, Gettin Square and a couple of TV shows all of which I assisted the set photographers on. What a great opportunity. Christmas 2003, the AUD is strong against the USD meaning no new movie shoots in Australia. It was great while it lasted but you gotta know when its time to move on.

It's mid-2000's and although I'd like nothing more than to drop everything and put all my time, energy and resources into a photography career, experience tells me that the smart way to approach this is to operate a small successful business that's time generous allowing me to build on my real passion of photography. The following 12 years of photography have been a joy of not only learning the art but also implementing the skills of this wonderful passion.
